"Have nothing in your home that you don't know to be useful or believe to be beautiful."
—William Morris

As long as everything is exactly like I want it, I am totally flexible  

First and foremost, I want my little side of the internet to feel welcoming, non-judgmental, encouraging, and inspiring. Maybe you've never done a DIY project and you want to start. Maybe you want a look for less designer wallpaper. Or maybe you just bought a brand new house and you need to know who makes the best custom drapery panels. Girl, I got you.
